    Your quilt is gorgeous!!! I'm like you, I love the backing! It is always a great feeling to try something different or solve a problem and have it come out great. A while back I took in a cutomer quilt that had busy prints on front and the customer wanted custom quilting, knowing I could not see my quilting stitches on the front for the custom qulting I loaded the quilt top side up and did a lot of SID around all the blocks. I then removed the quilt from the frame, reloaded it bottom side up and did some intense quilting. The customer was very pleased and I saved myself a lot of frustration.

    It's a GREAT idea. Your quilt will be beautiful on BOTH sides. I just finished an ispy quilt which I backed in a baby animal panel. I quilted to the panel and it turned out great!

    I am totally in love with your quilt, front and back. I love that you did the log cabin around your HSTs, and I love the backing fabric. The fabrics match so well, and it's a peaceful lovely quilt. Your idea of quilting the roses is wonderful and looks so lovely on both sides. Oh, did I say I love your quilt. Smilessssss and hugssssssss, I LOVEEEEEE it!!!

    great idea, good problem solving, but I really like the front also, especially the color combo.

    There is an extra wide backing fabric on the market designed to just exactly what you are doing! Has a design printed on it and you FMQ following the design and the design washes out afterwards (I think). See - you are on the cusp of innovation!

    I think this is a cool idea when you don't know how to quilt the top. I think it is a wonderful way to have a double-sided quilt.

    That is great. Actually Maurine Noble in her books and seminars tells you to MQ on the reverse, especially if it is an interesting design. Way to go,

    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.
